As you may know, Top MMA News was started by two friends, Marc-Andre and I, who loved Canadian MMA but could never find results or stories on Canadians who fight. No one covered Canada MMA from coast to coast, so we figured we would give it a shot.

We seem to hit a nerve as the site has grown pretty well and I am proud that we have developed a real sense of community around the site. Make no mistake, this has become the place where Canadian MMA fans, fighters, promoters, and even commissions come for their MMA news and…

well I dont want the site to grow too much… then it'll end up like sherdog with a bunch of tapout t-shirt wearing trolls posting on it trashing the real fans and fighters. I like how this site has a bunch of pro fighters, promoters, and managers posting on it….

what I want (which is what I asked for in the forums on oct 16th, 2010) is "a seperate forum for like training tips and like info on gyms in canada and the such"

more fighter blogs would be cool too…I like the inside look of the industry… how about a management blog from Robin Black?? or a promoter blog from one of the promoters on here?

there is not much i'd want as i am a huge fan of this site, very great coverage, you guys are good at informing canadian mma fans on many exciting mixed martial arts cards, news, and everything a fan would want to know, you profile all the fighters very well and give them the support they need and open the door for more people to realise the greatness of this sport. any improvements you guys make i will be happy with because i will still check this site every chance i get! good luck and keep moving forward, great site

Blogs from fighters would be pretty cool, and info on the best/all gyms would be awesome.

But yes i agree with devilboy, if this site gets in the wrong hands we'll have tapout junkies talking extreeme amounts of shit and constant stupid fourms like "who elses favorite fighter is Chuck Liddell, hasnt he ko'd like 200 people?" and numerous posts about Brock Lesnar being the best fighter in the world.

delete the troll comments on the news articles too… the trolls will stop posting on here if they just get deleted…

 

for example in the article about Kangs replacement being named… you have a guy that says "dirksen is a can" thats a troll post and should be deleted…

A mobile APP would be cool. MMA Junkie has a great one but they don't cover Canadian MMA.

I really enjoy the Canadian Rankings.  Keep them up!! 

Rankings in general are very tough to do and can really differ by person based on criteria used.  To me, what's less important is whether I think #4 and #5 should be inverted, but rather focussing on getting a good list of top Canadian talent at each weight class.

Yeah we've thought about it – it's a fine line though… there are quite a few we delete/don't approve as it is.

Hey the pic for the forum needs to be updated. The promotions on one side of the pic no longer exist.

I was thinking it would be cool to have a "Thumbs up" or "Thumbs down" "like" or "dislike" option for comments in the threads.

 

This would allow us readers to weigh in on what we think of comments, would give everyone a consensus on what the majority think on debates.

 

I know alot of news sites, and some other mma sites have this option, I "like" it….

We have been toying with a new comment board. It is easier to follow conversations, you can like, you can tell easier that you are replying to a person, and such but it does make people logon.

Registering seems to scare people.

Here are a couple of things I'd like to see.

1) A members bio page. It would be optional for people to post some info about themselves. Some guys post under their real names and others use an alias. Not all would use this, but it would be good to know who some of the guys/gals are posting.

2) A list of fighters and promotions who are looking for fights. It would be great to help find guys last minute replacements. Almost like a classifed section.

3) A list of promotions and fighters that guys may not want to deal with. We always hear about guys who do not get their meds done on time and on the rare ocassion promotions who do not pay fighters. It may give guys a heads up on situations.

I'm down with 1 & 2 of Deans suggestions… I think 3 would just turn into a hate section though….

You know Keith I really enjoy Big Wins video interviews with the fighters and would like to see alot more of them. It is a great way to get to know about the fighters past and what’s in their future from a personal point of view.

That combined with Deans #1 suggestion of a self input Bio Page but more so for the fighters with the availability to access their interview’s and highlight videos would be awesome. A comment section on that Bio Page for Deans # 2 suggestion would be great also.
